Van Morrison has been unveiled as the headliner for this summer's instalment of Green Man.

Little acorns, tiny oaks...

The Green Man began life as a tiny, alt folk oriented festival but now sits as one of the most respected summer events on the British calendar. Now the Welsh event have confirmed none other than Van Morrison as their headliner.

A massive coup for the Brecon Beacons festival, Van Morrison will return to Wales this summer. An iconic performer, Van The Man began life in Them before turning solo with the global hit single 'Brown Eyed Girl'.

Later completing the wonderful 'Astral Weeks' set, Van Morrison's career has taken him in countless different directions. A difficult, vivid, exploratory talent the songwriter will headline this summer's Green Man festival.

Van Morrison joins a bill which already includes fellow headliner Feist. The pick of the new additions, the Belfast born performer will be joined by much discussed newcomer Beth Jeans Houghton.

A North East performer, Beth Jeans Houghton wrote herself into Green Man folklore in 2008 when Devandra Banhart pulled her out of the crowd to sing a duet. Returning to Brecon Beacons, the singer will be joined by fellow newcomers Daughter, Bowerbirds and much, much more.

North Carolina-based trio psych-folk trio Megafaun will hit Green Man, while the Far Out After Dark arena will boast a performance from Richard Norris' mind-expanding new venture The Time And Space Machine.

Elsewhere, you can find sets from Jamie N Commons, Joe Pug, Nick Mulvey, RM Hubbert, Tiny Ruins and more with Green Man yet to unveil that illusive third headliner.

The Green Man runs between August 16th - 19th.
